Annual Report

The Supervisory Board is pleased to present the annual report, which includes the financial statements for 2018. The annual report is prepared by the Schiphol Group Management Board; KPMG Accountants N.V. audits the financial statements and has issued an unqualified opinion. The Supervisory Board's Audit Committee has discussed the financial statements extensively with the Chief Financial Officer (CFO), her team and the external auditor. The Supervisory Board subsequently discussed the annual report with the Management Board in the presence of the external auditor. Based in part on these discussions, the Supervisory Board has concluded that this annual report meets all relevant regulations and fulfils all governance and transparency requirements, and that it provides a fair and comprehensive picture of the results, risks and events subject to the Supervisory Board's supervision.

The Supervisory Board approves the financial statements and concurs with the Management Board’s proposal to distribute a dividend of 117 million euros on the issued share capital. The remaining portion of the net result of 161 million euros will be added to the retained earnings.

The financial statements will be submitted to the General Meeting of Shareholders for adoption by the shareholders on 16 April 2019. The Supervisory Board proposes that the Management Board be granted discharge in respect of the management carried out, that the Supervisory Board be granted discharge for the supervision exercised and that the financial statements be adopted.
